Shred is the word!

I've been trying to get off the extra Mommy jiggle I've been rocking and got back to hitting the gym and eating healthier. Then I came across something magical. Something magical and frightening. One of the bloggers I follow started a new exercise program, and was seeing great results. Since she has 4 kids, 2 of which are one year old twins, this got me very curious. I went and picked up my copy of the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels and about died that first night. Okay, not really died, but I was completely surprised at how a 22 minute workout could really kick my butt. Phew, day 1 done and I ended up a sweaty mess. By day 3 I was extremely sore. Must be working. Day 4, thankfully I was much better and starting to notice a change. Hmm, was I really losing some of my oh-so-not-attractive muffin top? Were my eyes deceiving me? Morning 8 I measured my muffin top and was shocked to see it was 2 inches smaller than it was on day 1!!! Wow! It was working! I've Shredded 15 days so far, and have seen results I never expected to see so quickly. I don't even remember when I was in this good of shape tone-wise. I'm taking the night off to ice my knee, as it's been bothering me. Level 2 is a bit tougher on the knees. I think I might switch back and forth between Level 1 and 2 to give it a bit of a break. My recommendation of the day, if you don't have much free time to dedicate to getting healthier/in better shape, give this a try! I guarantee, you won't be sorry!
